We had dinner with Jeremy’s coworkers from AMD-Dresden who are here on a 1-year assignment. The live in the same apartment complex that we do, just a few doors down. Martin and Partrize have two kids, a daughter Clara and a son Johann. They were giving us advice on where we should live in Dresden.
Martin actually grew up in East Germany in Dresden. He lived in a area nicknamed “The Valley of the Clueless” because unlike a lot of East German – Dresden, because of the topography, could not get TV reception from West Germany – so he lost out on learning about American culture via television.
